Alaska Airlines Welcomes Mokulele Airlines to Mileage Plan
Alaska Airlines has enhanced its partnership with Mokulele Airlines, making it the newest Mileage Plan partner, starting in early 2023. By joining forces, the two airlines make it easier and more convenient for guests to fly to additional locations throughout the islands.
Mokulele offers more interisland frequencies than any other airline in Hawaii with more than 800 flights a week – including as many as 150 peak-day departures – to 10 destinations across the Aloha State. With connecting service on Mokulele, Alaska Airlines guests will enjoy quicker access to seven new locations and two islands not directly served by Alaska, such as Hilo, Lanai and Molokai. Mokulele is the only carrier in Hawaii with regularly scheduled service to Lanai and Molokai.
Starting early 2023, here’s how our guests will benefit from our new partnership with Mokulele Airlines:
- Flights on Mokulele will be available for purchase directly on alaskaair.com. That addition to our website will happen early next year.
- Mileage Plan members who purchase tickets directly on alaskaair.com will earn miles when flying on Mokulele.
Hawaii is easy to get to on Alaska, thanks to an average of 30 nonstop peak-daily flights from seven West Coast cities (Anchorage, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles and San Diego) to the four largest islands – Oahu, Maui, Kauai and the Island of Hawaii.
Mokulele Airlines has operated for nearly 30 years. The company is owned by Southern Airways, which is the largest commuter airline in the U.S. In November, Southern will add a second 28-seat Saab 340 aircraft to Mokulele’s overall fleet as part of its expansion.
Mokulele serves 10 destinations in Hawaii: Honolulu on Oahu; Hana, Kahului and Kapalua on Maui; Hilo, Waimea–Kohala and Kona on Hawaii Island; Lanai City on Lanai; Kalaupapa and Hoolehua on Molokai. Mokulele recently announced a partnership with Hawaiian Airlines as well.
Alaska has flown to Hawaii for 15 years. We launched our first flight between Seattle and Honolulu on Oct. 12, 2007. Service between Seattle and Lihue, Kauai, started two weeks later, followed by Anchorage-Honolulu service in December 2007. In 2008, Alaska began serving Kona on the Island of Hawaii and Kahului on Maui.
The new partnership extends to all flights operated by Southern Airways Express, enabling connections in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Denver, Washington-Dulles, St. Louis, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Nashville, Atlanta and Pittsburgh.
Alaska is a member of the oneworld global alliance. With oneworld and additional airline partners, guests can earn and redeem miles with the Mileage Plan program to fly on more than 20 oneworld and partner airlines all around the globe. Elite status on Alaska automatically matches tier status in oneworld right away along with all the benefits that come with it.
